July Squares: Holly Blue Butterfly

A contribution to Becky’s July Squares: Blue photo challenge, day 30 of the 31 days of July.

With only two days left I decided to ignore the various blue birds, flowers and landscapes to go with another blue insect.

This is a Holly Blue Butterfly photographed on Holly in Hatherton, Cheshire, England.

There are such a wealth of blue butterfly species that identifying the exact kind can be very tricky at times. With good images like this that task would be easier though!

Thanks Becky. There was a lot of Holly in the garden so we got the butterflies. There must have been caterpillars in the spring but I never found any. IIRC the second brood each year feed on Ivy but I don’t remember how much Ivy was in the garden.
